4Giveness

Came out of church this day wanting to remember this part of the sermon. What better way than to scrap it… You know you’ve had a good thought-provoking sermon when the discussion on the way home in the car makes it into the house. So what was I thinking the answer was going to be? I guess in that few seconds I was thinking Love, but I think that forgiveness is a so much better answer.

Is there someone that you need to forgive for a hurt they have caused you. Forgiveness isn’t saying that what the other person did to you was right and that you were wrong. It is not forgetting what was done to you. Forgiveness isn’t an easy or natural reaction to being hurt. But it allows you to be free of the pain of carrying that hurt around with you all of the time. Allows you to let it go & continue your journey thru life and with God.

“Dear friends, let us love and forgive one another, for love and forgiveness comes from God.” 1 John 4:7 (paraphrased)
